Forum: oldtimeradio Subject: Has anyone put together a playlist...

I have the idea in my head that I would like to make a simulation of a radio day.. Using shows from the same time period and same time of year. Maybe with some commercials mixed in. I just can't think of an easy way to accomplish it.Has anyone tried it?

I was just thinking it would be neat to listen in a way closer to how it would have been listened to in the past.

I highly recommend listening to radio station above. I listen everyday and they have a regular schedule of otr, usually from the same date (different year). You can listen online-- I use my PSP using the internet radio app. I think you will find a really good sampler of shows that you would also find as downloads on the IA.

As an aside, this station inspired me to set up my own online radio station that I hope will be up in full force by christmas day (with christmas shows for the season), but I am not here to plug my station, hehe.

Have fun, it is a great listen!

I have listened to that and it is fascinating. My favorite time period for OTR is the mid to late 40's so I would like to put something together like that. I may just start working on it and see what I come up with. :)

you could use the radio logs to put together a list of shows as they aired in sequence on a particular evening on a particular network.
